Buzz about the "coming out" news

Yeah, so I've talked to a few friends about the situation regarding one of my characters from "Cafe con Leche" coming out and it and I have got nothing but positive feedback. Not sure when I'm going to debut this event but a friend suggested that it coincide with Pride Fest 2010 here in New York City, which is June 27. Since that's a Sunday, I think that I would probably start the series on a Monday and carry it through a couple of weeks.
The decision to introduce a gay character was a tough one for me. I realize that I may be alienating a few people, but at the same time it really carries with the "Cafe con Leche" theme of diversity. The strip centers around an inter-racial couple which is already controversial in some places.
